Remeha - Commercial Boilers
Remeha has a long tradition in the commercial boiler segment and a leading position in several European markets. Throughout Europe, the most popular way to provide central heating and hot water for all types of commercial buildings, such as schools, hotels, offices, hospitals and even large apartment blocks, is by means of a high output boiler specially designed for commercial situations.
Depending on what fuel is available, commercial boilers can run on natural gas, liquid gas, oil or renewable fuels including bio oils and wood. For detailed information on the ranges and models available in your market, please refer to yourcountry's specific site.
- Traditionally, floor standing boilers are used in commercial buildings. For smaller buildings, space saving wall hung boilers may be more suitable.
- It is very common to use more than one boiler in multiple or cascade configuration in a plantroom, to meet the increased heating and hot water needs of a large building, and also to provide a standby facility.
- Besides for heating, a boiler can be used to provide a building's hot water requirements using an indirect hot water storage tank or calorifier, a device that heats the water by circulating it over heating coils. Alternatively where hot water demand is high, for example in a hotel, separate direct water heater systems may be used wile boilers are dedicated to heating only.
Remeha produces commercial boilers that are either conventional or condensing. The term condensing, or high efficiency, means the boiler recovers more heat from the amount of fuel that is burnt, making it more efficient than conventional boilers. By recovering and using heat that would otherwise be lost up the flue, the best condensing boilers are more than 90% efficient.
Although condensing boilers cost more initially, they are very economical to use, and can pay back the initial extra cost in fuel savings. Condensing boilers also have lower emissions of toxic gasses making them more environment-friendly.
